Have you seen the Jesus pictures of George W. Bush? BuzzFlash and its readers have been tracking them.

Here's one, from the Associated Press.

Here's another, also from AP.

Here's yet another (source unknown).

Administrations regularly arrange sites of presidential appearances so the photographs and TV footage will be flattering -- you place the lectern here, you compel the photographers to stand there, and, if you've done your job right, your guy looks heroic or compassionate or whatever.

But the Bushies want their guy to look as if he's got a halo around his head.

That's creepy. And if a some voters actually like this, or respond to it even on a subconscious level, that's even creepier.
